Light rain, snow will clear as temps continue to climb
Wednesday will be most mild day of this week
DETROIT – A little late morning rain and/or snow shower is nothing much to worry about today.
We thought it would dry and fizzle out, but it held together enough to wet the roads.
We will get gradual clearing this afternoon and steady temps in the mid 30s to low 40s. It still is the best day of the week.
We will get back to 40s Thursday with a rain maker coming in mid to late morning tomorrow.
One issue we are tracking is the possibility of freezing rain, sleet, and snow as the system pulls in around 10 am Thursday.
It will quickly get back to all rain and fog through the day and some showers will produce moderate to heavy rain. The Storm Prediction Center has the area near the Ohio and Indiana borders under a slight risk for severe weather Thursday afternoon. If our southern counties see anything, it will be thunder, lightning, and a few strong gusts of wind. Breezes pick up through the afternoon and evening making for a pretty ugly day.
We also need to caution everyone for street flooding late Thursday and early Friday. Some major melting, ice damming, and potential trouble for flood prone areas of SE Michigan. Cooler temps Friday will try to bring a a few snow showers and very gusty winds to end the work and school week. Friday temps will be in the 30s.
Colder air will return this weekend with nothing more expected than a few flurries Saturday and Sunday. It will not be a big deal other than to show our temps cooling back to more winter like conditions. Saturday will be in the low 30s, while Sunday will drop us down in the 20s.
